The very first lot in the auction is a great collection of Native artifacts. This is an Oklahoma Flint Collection with an 8 inch spearhead. They are of pre historic origin and made from flit and chert. The items measure from 1 inch to 8 inches and there are 13 pieces in all. Most show some damage due to age, and the spearhead is in nice condition. Up next at Lot 2 is another flint collection, this time from Texas. This lot includes a Folsom Point and is from the Archaic and Paleo period. These are also made of chert and flint with pieces measuring from 1 inch to 3 inches. There is a nice frame included for display, and the Folsom point is in nice shape. Bidding opens on both lots at only $40 and a full array of photos are available for viewing in the online catalog.

A very interesting piece of work is up for action at Lot 78. This is a painted steer skull with turquoise feathers and paint. This decorations are possibly Apache. There are some chips and cracks in the piece, and it has maintained its beautiful appearance. Six photos can be viewed online for inspection, and bidding is opening at a great value of only $20.

There is plenty of jewelry in the auction. At Lot 42 are two sterling silver and stone rings. One ring is a size 7 and the other is size 7 ½. They are heavy in design and the total weight of both is approximately 33 grams. Both are used and have normal wear on them. Moving to Lot 66, bidders will find a wonderful grouping of silver and abalone jewelry pieces. This group includes a butterfly of 2 by 3 inches, a belt buckle at 1 ½ by 3 inches, and a maple leaf at 2 by 2 ½ inches. Both lots are another great value in the auction and will sell to the highest bidder.
